Please erase your amarok configuration files located in $HOME/.kde/share/config/ and try again, this is most likely a problem with old configuration files lying around. Also it apparently tries to load a rather big playlist.

I took a look through the amarokrc file and discovered 330 entries in the [Loaded Playlist Files] section. I deleted these lines and amarok started reasonably fast again. I wonder if these playlists will be added again... I will post back here soon.

OK, So Amarok now starts normally, and upon re-adding all the correct folders to the media library, my playlist have been added to the media sources without noticeably affecting startup time. This is all good. O would mark the bug solved, but it might perhaps be worth ignoring the offending section in the config file if it's not necessary, or is it still used somewhere? Rob

Thank you for the feedback. Previous versions of amarok added playlist information that could cause such problems, especially if some files were not directly accessible. It is in general saved to erase the amarokrc file though and this should then not happen again if you use no older version than 2.5
